our "idaho sunrise" shot #2.. no, we did not have idaho potatoes, but it still worked!!
Looks I Love
Did this with our fresh haul this year and we still have mostly all good ones almost two weeks later. I say it definitely worked.

Did you know that the juice of potato is more effective than any medicine and proven to treat cancer, diabetes, gastritis, high blood pressure and many other serious illnesses? Useful properties of raw potatoes have long been known to folk medicine, but despite that, we still think it should not...
We referred to the plans at Anna-White.com. It is made up of regular 2 x 4′s, some 2 x 2′s, and rough pine planks all purchased at our local Rona store. We had to modify the construction a bit because we did not have a Kreg Jig, but I think ours turned out pretty darn close.
Citronella candles. Not super easy unless you already have the candle making stuff, but I'll still give it a shot!
serena and lily asher bedding. We did this for our boys room. Very happy with it. Still need to order the skirts for the bed though. Love Serena and Lily, but not cheap
My Wedding Ideas
How the Grinch Crinkled Christmas (cookies) Made these cookies today, but did not add the food coloring! I used a spatula to stir, and it was a little tougher, but still worked. These cookies were so chewy and soft, the softest "cookie" ever! I might have to try this with a chocolate cake mix and see if it works the same way, LOVE!
DIY Craftsman Style Window Trim - I did not know that this was enough of a thing to have a special name! But it looks nice. (And we have it on most of our windows now.)
THINGS I LOVE
Timing was not on our side but it all worked out in the end. Soulmate
This is not even a joke. This is literal. If I have a fight with a flatmate and it resolves, but she' still sore about it- even if we come to a mutually agreeable end to the fight, I can't go back to calm until she does. Also, there have been times I have noticed peoples' moods before they even did.
This really works - we did it for our raised beds and regular garden, no weeds for two years!! The newspaper will prevent any grass and weed seeds from germinating, but unlike fabric, it will decompose after about 18 months. By that time, any grass and weed seeds that were present in the soil on planting will be dead. It’s green, it’s cheaper than fabric, and when you decide to remove or redesign the bed later on, you will not have the headache
gyros! we did not use ground beef, but lamb meat from our "river market."
OK…We did not have Bieber Fever- BUT ohhhh David Cassidy…Donnie Osmond and Bobby sherman!
my family....we may not have it all together...but together we have it all!!
Sometimes in the middle of grief it may seem that God has abandoned you. But He promises never to leave or forsake you. We do not grieve as those who have no hope, our hope is in heaven.
Words to remember
We don't have a wedding party but we could have our families and closest friends standing around for this shot.
This is not our hair, but we have the same style in Jamie hair!! You guys can check it on our site!! ☀☀
Ballet. Ballerinas live for it. We were born to do it. It challenges us. We invest all of our time to it. It's the reason for our blood, sweat and tears. It causes us pain and frustration but we still love it. Ballet is our passion, our life, and everything to us and no one but ballerinas will ever understand that.✨
How to clean a microfiber couch. I will definitely try this! (I didn't try this really, but we have a microfiber couch. We just used a rug doctor and upholdstry cleaner. Took the stains right out. It did nothing to the fabric itself. Now, our couch set is light brown, not white. So, IDK. Maybe use the recipe in this pin?)
12 Cheapskate Splurges. Although these might be splurges--they are WELL worth it. The only 2 we haven't done: Club Level Accommodations (not in our room enough--although we have splurged to get a water view); and pin trading (fun for kids no doubt, but there are so many other things to buy, (I absolutely treasure my Venetian Glass Mickey Wine Stopper and Mickey wall clock). But - pins are cheaper! So definitely splurge on WHATEVER will bring
You Dont Have To Have It All Figured Out To Move Forward. "Our greatest glory is not in never falling but in rising every time we fall." ~ Confucius
I am not a holiday food purist. When my family switched our eating habits, we carried our love of vegetables and whole grains into the holidays as well. At first, the other members of my extended family were hesitant, but after a few years, they realized that while the food was heavily loaded with vegetables, it was still delicious. These simple sweet potatoes would easily grace our table during the holidays.
